FOSS4G-Asia 2023 Seoul

FOSS4U -- Free and Open Source for Uncrewed Aerial Systems
11-28, 14:00–18:00 (Asia/Seoul), Workshop Room

The Learning Objective of this session is "understand how to create your own high quality artisinal point clouds, pixels, and triangular meshes with low-cost hardware and open-source software".

OpenDroneMap is free (libre) and open source photogrammetry toolkit targeted at low flying aircraft and other photogrammetric imagery processing. For the first half of the workshop, we will go over drone mapping basics: hardware, software, and best practices.

The second half of the workshop focuses on software processing of images from the drone in order to make the images usable as geospatial datasets. We'll take users through installation and use of OpenDroneMap, WebODM, and the processing of datasets, settings, and options therein, and discuss and demonstrate options for hosted and scalable OpenDroneMap solutions.
